Özet

Chitotriosidase is one of the most quantitative proteins secreted by activated macrophages, so its activity has been proposed as a biochemical marker of macrophage accumulation. The clinical importance of the chitotriosidase is still largely unknown. Our aim was to evaluate diagnostic accuracy of serum chitotriosidase activity in acute appendicitis (AA).
